Can the cuff be used on the wrist? Or, must it be above the elbow?

Because of my weight normal blood pressure cuffs don't fit my arm. Have a wrist level device from Walgreens in the US, but am interested in this one. So was wondering whether it can be used on the wrist, or whether it has to be used on the upper arm.

    Above the elbow. It has a pretty good sizing though, as I typically can't use the drug-store machines either and require the large cuff in my doctor's office. It's not huge, but it's definitely larger than the standard cuff sizing.
